Commissioning Services ensure the successful implementation of Project Requirements and subsequent building performance. There are various types of Commissioning Services available today. These range from contract services to standardised generalised audits, to specific components tailored to an individual project. The use of Commissioning Services varies from case to case and depending on the complexity and details of the project.
Contract services involve the application of Commissioning Services on the project requirements and ensuring compliance with the relevant licensing. The Project Sponsor or Designer would be responsible for the initial market analysis and detailed design development of the relevant building and subsequent delivery. The application of Commissioning Services will include provisions for providing advice and guidance to the Project Sponsor with respect to building specifications, including scheduling, site selection and construction documents to identify scope, acceptance procedures and cost estimates. The objective of the commissioning process is to define the scope, deliverables, testing and documentation necessary to achieve the desired outcomes.
In order to achieve new construction and Commissioning Services, it is necessary to identify and describe the requirements in writing. It is necessary to conduct and evaluate feasibility and alternative options to establish commissioning services that are economically viable. This will then require identifying the appropriate building contractor or developers who are capable and willing to build and manage the buildings on schedule and within budget. In some cases, this may also involve securing a lease for a portion of the new construction. It should be noted that in most instances, if the Commissioning Services are carried out in house by the developer/contractor, it is possible to retain ownership of the building after completion. However, most new construction requires commissioning services from an independent third party.
Retro-commissioning involves the application of Commissioning Services to buildings which have been closed down or are now deemed surplus to requirement. An example of this could be the removal of asbestos from a commercial building due to health concerns. In this case, the building owner wishes to complete the necessary repairs and replacement of all damaged asbestos, remove the hazardous material safely and then resume normal operations. In order to make the transition to full commissioning services easy, it is important to find a company that can offer both standard and accelerated retro-commissioning services. This would allow for the quick completion of all necessary repairs and guarantees that the building will remain safe for as long as possible.
In order to assess whether the proposed Commissioning Service is economically viable, it is important to obtain the estimated cost of all required repairs and replacements. The value of the property and the amount of surplus funds available from the sale of surplus building commissioning services will determine the size of the budget requested. The value of the property and any surplus funds will be a good indicator of the financial potential of the proposed Commissioning Service. On the other hand, the value of the property will not provide the necessary information for determining the amount of commission to be requested.
When a construction firm agrees to provide Commissioning services, they will be making a commission based on the value of the land that they are replacing and the amount that is being charged for the construction work. The value of the land will be based on recent sales, existing structures and any upgrades that have been made to the land in the last 10 years. If the new construction is on an already used structure, the value will be based on the condition of the structure before the construction was completed. In order for the owner to be fully compensated for Commissioning services, they must submit a bid to the Board of Fitness Commissioning Services to specify the amount that the owner wishes to be paid for the work. The amount that the owner submits is then incorporated into the overall cost of the project. Once this contract has been established, it cannot be changed without the written approval of the Board of Fitness Commissioning Services and the contractor.
